Using Inner Wisdom to Organize and Get Your Life back on Track

Posted by Intuition Girl

There was once a German philosopher who had a great outlook on life. Immanuel Kant believed that science is organized knowledge and wisdom is organized life. This implies that while we may be “book smart,” it is our innate wisdom that allows us to fulfill our destiny in life. How? Having an organized life is what enables us to move forward, and to let go of the past.

What is all this talk about “inner wisdom,” you say? For starters, inner wisdom (or higher consciousness) is not all just about talk…a matter of fact, inner wisdom is more of a gut feeling or intuitive inclination to guide you along in life. There really is no “right” or “wrong” approach to following your inner wisdom — you simply do. When something deep inside of you compels you to take action or to redirect your energy – that’s inner wisdom.

Because we are all part of the Universal flow of energy, and energy is an integral component to our guiding force, we must learn to rely on learned experiences and actions so that we can proficiently organize our lifestyles; and recreate the life we want to lead.

One can be intelligent, but ignorant at the same time. How so? Knowledge is indeed power, but imagine the unlimited possibilities that you could have if you coupled your knowledge with inner wisdom. The life force, which resides in you, is your intuitive soul — your metaphorical watchtower. It keeps you in sync with the flow of Universal energy and prompts you to realize your potential and your dreams. The good news is that you can use your inner wisdom to organize and get your life back on track — and that’s the most exciting part about putting your life in order — you need only add the essential element of your higher consciousness and suddenly, you see the world through a new pair of eyes; your mind is sharper; your voice and body constitution stronger; your spirit sours, and the journey ahead is crystal clear.

The Waiting Game

Posted by Intuition Girl

Do you play the waiting game? In other words, do you procrastinate on your plans to the point of paralysis? It is one thing to be pragmatic about a given strategy or initiative; but once the assessment is complete, it is time to move onto the next step. Too often, people get caught up in the waiting game in the hopes that “something good is going to happen”, but never see the thought through fruition. They simply think that by doing nothing to progress their lives, that fate will somehow jump up to the plate and drop the golden goose egg in their laps. This is not how success works. In fact, the mindset of “hoping” for something good to happen might be a good start, but it is in no way a means to an end. If you choose to deliberate too long on making the next move toward your success, you become too complacent and instead of progressing, you start to stagnate in the same place.

When life gets dull or dire, you may think that there is no end in sight. You may even believe that no matter what you do, it will not help you move forward to get out of your slump. Truth is if you keep believing that, you are right. Henry Ford once said, “You can’t build a reputation on what you are going to do.” That is the key phrase, “going to do”. Life is more about the actual “doing” than it is the “going to do’s”. He also said, “It has been my observation that most people get ahead during the time that others waste.” Are you wasting your talent and time? The act of taking your ideas and transforming them into reality is what moves you; and for what life becomes more meaningful. The realization of turning dreams into real success is the cornerstone to gaining significant purpose in life.

If you are sitting here right now wondering why you have put off plans for so long, then it is now time to make your move. You cannot depend on empty promises you have made to yourself. Only you have the gift to awaken your creative talents to achieve goals you want in life. Stop postponing your success because no one else can or will make it happen for you. Ultimately, it is entirely up to you whether or not you apply your ideas and turn those ideas into tangible fortune. Ask yourself: What is it that I really want in life? Yes, it is an open-ended question. For many of you, it will be good health, for others it may be a career move or perhaps a blanket statement like, “I want to be wealthy.” It is a fundamental certainty that many millionaires acquired their riches through strong motivation and genuine desire to achieve. Hope may have played a role in the planning stages, but it was the action upon which they based their strategy that got the ball rolling. If you want to gain wealth, achieve overall wellbeing, and lead a joy-filled life, then you must choose to do what it takes to get the ball rolling in the direction you want it to go. From today forward, I want you to keep the mindset that all things are possible when you act upon the thing it is you want in your life. Don’t wait for success to fall in your lap, your odds are better getting struck by lightning.

Are you embracing or chasing dreams?

Posted by Intuition Girl

There is a difference. Some of us have been successfully able to transform our dreams into realities. The difference between those who have not and those who have, is whether or not dreams were being chased or embraced. What’s the difference, you ask? If you are chasing your dreams, more oft than not, you will end up with pipe dreams – dreams that you want to achieve but unattainable because you are just chasing them and not making them happen for you. When you embrace your dreams, you have a keen understanding regarding the requirements to achieving those dreams. This means that because you are prepared to make the long haul to realizing your dreams, you are going to do the homework that goes into laying your foundation.

For example, if you want to achieve a particular career, the essential step is establishing the end goal: Are you being realistic about the specific professional path? If you want to be a famous singer or musician, you understand that it typically takes years of hard work and commitment to gain celebrity status. If you want the career because you have a love for music and singing, then perhaps you may wish to pursue a teaching career in the arts; or maybe performing locally at fairs, trade shows or in theaters. Perhaps, in this particular case, you may want to work toward writing music and lyrics for already established musicians and lyricists to get an idea on how to achieve your own dreams. You see, there is an understanding that while you may not become rich and famous overnight, you can at least have alternative options at the ready should one path lead you to another.

The same holds true for any and all dreams. You must have several options from which to choose. If you narrow your vision to much, you set yourself up for disappointment. If you broaden your vision, you open yourself up to many doors of diversity. In doing so, you often discover a true appreciation and love for the many aspects of your chosen field. The trick is not limiting yourself to just one vision, but expanding that vision to be all inclusive.

When you embrace your dreams, you also learn how to expand your network to connect with others who may be able to help you in your endeavors. In some cases, that may mean becoming more skilled in your area of expertise by taking additional vocational classes or attaining a higher degree in college. In other instances, it may mean that you need to become an apprentice to others where you can acquire the proficiency in doing what it is you do.

Don’t forget to educate yourself in more ways than one. If you are embracing your dreams, you are committed to learning every last detail needed to realizing them. If you are simply sitting back and waiting for the magic to happen then you may be forced to wait a long, long time for it. You are the spark that will ignite your dreams. When you challenge yourself to do more, you become more. Stop chasing your dreams, embrace them. Make them a reality.

Are you Embracing your Dreams?

When I Wish upon a Star…

Posted by Intuition Girl

Do you remember a time when you saw a shooting star and you caught yourself making a wish? It’s okay to admit that you have… a lot of us have. And even without a shooting star, we sometimes find ourselves wishing for things that we do not have, for what others may have, and things that we could have had. Quite frankly, it is probably human nature to strive for bigger and better things…

This reminds me of a song that topped the charts back in 1995. Hip hop rapper Skee-Lo debuted with his one-hit wonder, “I wish”. In his song, he talks about how he wishes he was a bit taller, among many other things. The funny part about the lyrics is that the whole song is a big “pity party”. When wishing becomes the greater part of who you are, you begin seeing all the negativity in your life opposed to all the blessings that surround you now. In fact, when you create your own pity party, you can no longer focus on open doors of opportunity. The world becomes too difficult and all that you see is what you cannot have. That is not the way you are intended to live your life.

What is it that you heart desires right now? If it is a relationship, then what are you doing to create and manifest the connection you are seeking? If you are simply wishing for a relationship it is simply not good enough. Words and thoughts without deeds go nowhere. The same applies to the word “try”. For example, “I tried to have a relationship but it just didn’t work out.” If you truly “tried”, what was it that you did differently to make things work more effectively and mutually? Make a list of things that you can do right now to create the life you want to lead. After you have crafted your list, you need to follow through on those modifications so that you will not just be trying, but instead, doing.

“When you DO all that you can do to support and manifest the dreams that you have made in your heart and soul, then your wishes can come true.” When you DO what your inner soul truly wants you to do, all the obstacles you see before you become stepping-stones and opportunities for learning and growing. Remember too, dreams and wishes are the heart’s laughing place – a tender spot in your heart that keeps you striving and thriving. Never let go of your heart’s desires – but in order to fulfill them, you have to do more than just try – you simply must do.

Slam Dunk!

Posted by Intuition Girl

The ball is in your court. You have the opportunity to make a three-pointer from the goal line. At first there is a loud roar, and the other players are watching your every move. As your eyes focus on the net, the only thing stirring on your body is the bead of sweat rolling down your forehead. Just as quickly as the crowd roared, there is a sudden silence. Not even a hush can be heard around the court. The only thing between you and the net is your clear concentration to make the ball through the hoop. All your hard work and efforts have finally paid off. What you do with that ball at this moment is going to affect the outcome of the game…and maybe even your future as a professional ball player. Do you take the shot or do you walk away?

Nothing is impossible to those who believe. Do not refuse to move onward and upward to grab your greatness! Possibly you just say to yourself-I can’t do it-it is too hard! Dreams can become reality for you when you choose to manifest the power of you inner abilities and your inner soul. When you seek the courage in your heart like so many have done before you, you pave the way to achieving that what you truly desire in life. Do not forget that you are already standing on the court. The ball is either within reach or maybe even in your hands.

Whatever it is that you are choosing to pursue at this moment — a job, a new home, a relationship — is entirely within your own hands. You shape your reality…you choose your destiny. Are you going to take the shot? For what are you waiting? This moment will not last forever. At some point you must make that initial forward motion and keep the momentum going. Life waits for no one and the longer you stand in the same spot, the further you fall behind and the more you lose sight of your focus. I have said it before and I am saying it again, “keep it going. Keep it going.” Set your sights and take the shot at the goal — if you believe, nothing is impossible.
